    Raja Ampat-Lembeh straits...One more time

    Gotta do it once again.....guess I am a creature of good habits (like my yearly Palau trip)! This will be my 5th trip to these areas in 4 years. Planning on getting in 60+ dives and will break number 800

    I'm starting off at the Sorido resort in RA for 10 days then to Lembeh for another 10 days and will spend a couple of days in both Singapore and Hong Kong.

    Not looking forward to the initial flight....Leave LA to Hong Kong to Singapore to Manado to Makassar to Sorong then a 2 hour boat ride to Kri Island and i change planes at each stop. Plus I am carrying an extra 60lb bag for a friend.....should be a challenge just to see if all the bags make it!....And for those who ask is it worth it?...Absolutey

    Worth it indeed. Have a great time and give Indonesia a hug from me. I love that country.

    Got in 28 dives in the last 10 days here in Papua-Raja Ampat staying at Sorido resort...was hoping to get in around 4 more but no diving on Saturday and spent a couple of afternoons flying in Max's ultra light....and being he does a few dips here and there and I have a problem with motion sickness....That was enough for me for the day!.....Overall had some GREAT dives

    On my way at 5 am to Lembeh straits

    What are your march dates for Palau? If the dates fit, I may meet you there for 5 of them.

    I have off the week of the 10th so it's a possibility. Shoot me an email when you get back with your hotel info. If I remember correctly, you dive with Sam's right?
